Tap at Split Rock, ’04. Golden with a golden head and clear. Clean aroma with a touch of hops and malt. Nice malty hoppy balance. Some malt sweetness, hop flavor, and lingering bitterness and hops. Decent pils.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Pours a cloudy amber with a decent off white head that does not really stick around too long. Nose is a bit woody with a slight perfume to it. Flavor is much more robust than I was expecting. Thick tree character with a stringent sweet edge that has an overall thick caramel tone to it. Feel is smooth on the liquid with a fairly low carbonation. Very drinkable. A very well made brew with a lot of body and character to it. Definitely worth a try.

One of the first popular micos in the Pittsburgh area. Classic Vienna style pilsner….excellent. Maybe my rating is higher because of loyalty to this brewery. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts, and hops. The flavor is sweet malts medium body and a bitter slightly hoppy finish.

My favorite locally brewed beer. Great for everyday. More flavor than a typical pilsner. Probably more like an ale.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - FEB 28, 2009
Bottle 355 ml
Appearance: pours as clear dark golden brew. Medium long lived mid dense top.
Nose: Clean , fresh properly constructed pils aroma. Meadow like hop profile often found in Bavarian and Bohemian lagers. Very neat refreshing softness.
Flavor/Palate : Medium light bodied. Golden malt bottom. Not to heavy with delicate yet pronounced hops. Very drinkable amber pils from Penn Brewery. Pleasant surprise.
As of Feb 2009 this beer is higly underrated.

G: Pilsner Urquell pilsener glass. A: Dark gold with plenty of carbonation and a rather large head. Quite transparent. S: Pale malts with a field-ish smell. Slightly sweet. T: Slightly sweet with some grainy flavors. Slight hint of bubble gum. Slight hop presence. Slightly hefeweizen-esque. M: Very light mouthfeel with minimal carbonation and no alcohol presence. Very smooth. D: Exceedingly drinkable. Definitely looking forward to these over the summer. Fiancee thinks its "okay."
